“During this one and a half year, which I spent as an intern and later as an assistant with Jón Páll, I learned a lot. It was a great opportunity to continue my education and improve my photography skills. Jón helped me to use and understand better the technical part of photography and get comfortable with working in a studio. I belive, all this knowlage what I got here, is making me a better photographer, and it is a meaningful experiance in my life. I am very grateful to have this chance of learning from him - ZB.”
